    Happy Mother's Day to all the 'Mothers' in My Life

     

    While I have only one Mom in my life, there are many other mothers in my life to whom I wish to offer a Happy Mother's Day.

    There  are even a few over the years who have never had children of their own,  but provided that maternal care to boys and girls with whom they came  in contact. To those women also I offer a Happy Mother's Day.

    Saturday I shared a tribute to my own Mom on From the Cornfield. You can read that article at:

    To That Special Woman Called 'Mom' and on CNN iReport where it was vetted for use on CNN.

    Now I pause to offer verbal flowers to all of the "mothers" in my life who are still with us:

    My mother, Sharon Hollifield

    My maternal grandmother, Mary Powell

    My sister, Leticia Hollfield

    My aunt, Doris Harwick

    My aunt, Nancy Shipley

    My oldest son's mother, Luann Logan

    My youngest son's mother, Cathie Land

    My oldest son's wife and mother of my granddaughters, Anna Ivy

    My sister-in-law, Brenda Ivy

    My father's wife, Susie Ivy

    My step-sister, Lorena Martin

    There  have been good times and some not so good times, yet each of these  women have had an impact in my life. I wish for each of them a day  filled with love, joy and peace.

    Then  there are some other "mothers" who have been so supportive to me over  the past couple of years during some rough patches who are members of CNN's iReport community:

    Kathi

    Janie

    Marie

    Gretchen

    Shari

    Jodi

    Funda

    Di

    Linda

    Cathy

    Beth

    Maria

    Julie

    Each  of them in their own way, some mothers and grandmothers, some without  children, who have given verbal and moral support through my ups and  downs with my health. Their online friendship has meant more than they  will ever know.

    May God bless each of you and may His peace be with you.
